By Gareth J. F. Jones (auth.), Andreas Nürnberger, Marcin Detyniecki (eds.)

This ebook is a longer number of contributions that wereoriginally subm- ted to the first foreign Workshop on Adaptive Multimedia Retrieval (AMR 2003), which was once geared up as a part of the twenty sixth German convention on Arti?cial Intelligence (KI 2003),and held in the course of September 15–18,2003at the collage of Hamburg, Germany. prompted via the general luck of the workshop – as printed through the stimulating surroundings through the workshop and the variety of very and lively individuals – we ?nally determined to edit a booklet in keeping with revised papers that have been at the start submitted to the workshop. additionally, we invited a few extra introductory contributions with a purpose to have the ability to supply a conclusive ebook on present themes within the quarter of adaptive multimedia retrieval structures. we are hoping that we have been in a position to prepare a stimulating number of articles for the reader. we adore to thank the organizationcommittee of the twenty sixth German convention on Arti?cial Intelligence (KI 2003) for delivering the environment and the admin- trative help in figuring out this workshop as a part of their application. particularly, we love to thank Christopher Habel for selling the workshop as a part of the convention software and Andreas Gun ¨ ther for his variety aid through the association process.

We report our work towards building user models of learner’s development based upon evidence of their interactions with an e-learning website composed of multimedia learning objects. Essentially, this involves three elements: effective metadata for each learning object; analysis of each user’s time spent with each learning object; reasoning about each individual’s knowledge of the course that is based upon a collection of learning objects.
